Chiefs, Pirates arrive in Swaziland

2015-07-17 09:49
Maritzburg United are ‘hurt’ by the sudden departure of coach Steve Komphela who was introduced as Kaizer Chiefs’ new coach yesterday.

Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs are in Swaziland where they will take Royal Leopards and Mbabane Swallows respectively in the first ever Kings Cup.

The tournament's PRO, Dumisane Sibandze, told Sport24 that football lovers in Swaziland are ready for the one day tournament which will be played at the Somhlolo National Stadium.

Sibandze said that both Pirates and Chiefs have a big support base in Swaziland and they will all be at the stadium.

"To have two big South African teams in one day is a blessing and the supporters are ready for the tournament," Sibandze said.

"It promises to be a great tournament and we are all looking forward to a great day of football."

The tournament will also serve as the first test for new Chiefs coach Steve Komphela, who has replaced Stuart Baxter at the helm of the league champions.
